I'd just take the high road here, nothing to be gained and more time away from the Haas. I think you know you have a rabid following and one wanker pissed off about some minor detail isn't going to change your reputation one iota. It was earned from hard work, innovation and exceptional customer service (in my case).
However getting into a tete-a-tete with Brian is a lose-lose.
We're not out here to rough it. We're here to smooth it. Things are rough enough in town.
